Mental Health is a minefield there is not enough help or information for carers, families and friends.
It would be good if there was someone at the community practice to help us.. Wyburn Medical Practice, Curtis St, Hucknall is good but I don't think all the doctors have sufficient knowledge about Mental Health. My husband has got bi polar, personality disorder, compulsive obsessional behaviour and psychosis.
I don't think my husbands needs are being fully understood.
When we go to the GP we only get 10 minutes. If this is a doctor who doesn't know you they make you feel as if you are a nuisance and bothering them. Whether they mean to do that I don't know but this is how it comes across to me,
I would like for one appointed Doctor or GP practitioner nurse with a sound knowledge of Mental Health who can give help or advice when necessary.
I would also like better education on Mental Health for Carers and their families
